“As women, we’re constantly told to speak up, lean in, and be a badass . . . We absolutely should. We must! But we have to execute these things in the right way.”
Dion Lim is an Emmy Award-winning TV news anchor and reporter at ABC7/KGO-TV in San Francisco, CA. As the first Asian American woman to be a morning then main evening anchor at three different television stations before the Bay Area, she has more than made her mark as a minority climbing the competitive TV news ladder. But she stands apart as a professional journalist who is willing to share her own stories with viewers and readers, as well. (Just ask her about the time she anchored an 11pm newscast with a chicken wing bone stuck in her neckline!)
A sought-after speaker and emcee, she has hosted events with everyone from news legend Dan Rather to Hollywood celebrities like Patrick Dempsey and business professional groups of 2,000+. She has contributed to the Huffington Post by Arianna Huffington’s personal invitation and has also written a series for Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls. She has been named one of America’s Top 18 Leaders in TV Under 34 by Broadcasting & Cable Magazine.
In a fast-paced world where opportunities appear- and shift- at a moment’s notice, how you communicate can, quite simply, make or break your career. Your work environment today includes a diverse array of people and personalities. The ability to interact with all of them, think on your feet, and grab a good opportunity when it’s facing you is the special sauce that will help you achieve your goals.
Dion Lim has seen it all. As an Asian-American woman in the hyper-competitive, white- and male-dominated business of TV news, her career path required a powerful blend of street smarts, determination, and a willingness to learn from mistakes – all of which she learned on the job. Today, she’s an ABC anchor in one of the biggest cities in the country.
In Make Your Moment, named one of Parade Magazine's top 13 books written by women this fall, Dion guides you through what she has learned on the career battlefield and what it means for other working women today. She’ll take you through the treacherous--and often entertaining--landscape of the modern workplace, covering virtually every situation you’re likely to experience. From the art of thinking quickly on your feet to #MeToo moments, you’ll learn how to master office politics, make online/social media dynamics (good and bad) work for you, and thrive under pressure.
Dion learned how to stay true to herself, so she could find her moment and make it, rising from a local reporter to the national stage.
Now it’s your turn.
Whether you’re just starting out in your career or a seasoned professional, the communication skills you’ll learn will get you through the awkward, the unexpected and the downright bizarre situations of the workplace and propel you to the next level.
Make Your Moment has been endorsed by news legends Connie Chung and Dan Rather, Olympian Kristi Yamaguchi, actress Tiffani Amber-Theissen and many more. Join the movement to make your moment!
